What can you do this week that your future self will thank you for?

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Blog Posts |


So you have made it through the Trial Exams (or just about for the remaining schools still in their Trials) and hopefully you are happy with the work you have put in. More importantly you will have learned what worked for you and what didn’t work for you so that you can improve your performance for the main event, the final HSC exams.

I see the HSC as simply a life challenge and an amazing opportunity for each and every student to demonstrate how they deal with challenges. Do you stand up to the challenge or do you shy away from the challenge? If you would like to be known as someone who has the ability to stand up to challenges and achieve great things, this is your opportunity.


It’s not going to be easy, but it’s going to be worth it.

What are NSW students studying at University?

Posted by on Aug 11, 2014 in Blog Posts |

We came across these statistics today showing what and where students across NSW commenced their University education in 2013.

With most students now through their Trial Exams, now is a great time to do some research into the courses that you might be interested in studying next year.

The coaching staff at HSC CoWorks are studying Law, Commerce, Engineering, Advanced Science, Media and Education at UNSW and USYD so if you have any questions about their University or their course be sure to ask them!


What are students studying at Uni?

This week HSC CoWorks Coach, Emma Cohen tells us about her University experience so far.


Which University do you attend? 

I am currently completing a Bachelor of Arts/Law at UNSW, with a Major in International Development and Minor in Philosophy.


What do you like about your course so far? 

My “Arts” components are really interesting, whereas I find law quite challenging. I love the amount of thinking and discussion my degree requires.

I am constantly confronted with new ideas and different view points, and I do love a good argument!


What do you like about your University?

UNSW is great! I live on campus, so I’m completely entrenched in campus life.

The best part of uni is the freedom and independence: the hours are flexible, the lectures are a more relaxed environment compared to school and you already have so much in common with everyone you meet!
